Dim Sum, the unique Chinese-originated culinary cuisine, was first made a couple thousand years ago in Northern China. Originally exclusive to emperors, their families, and the wealthy, has evolved throughout centuries. People have enjoyed these tiny delicacies in bustling tea houses along the Silk Road, and now all over the world. During the 20th century, Dim Sum has expanded to other Asian countries. The way the dumplings are made, from their filing, pastry, and shape, depends on region and climate from which it was made.
